For example, drivers often get dinged for not wearing a seatbelt. After pulling to the side of the road, a driver may unbuckle their seatbelt to grab paperwork they know the officer will want to check. When the officer sees the driver isn't buckled in, that’s an automatic violation.
ITI’s Roadside Inspections training is full of simple, practical tips like keep your seatbelt on to help drivers get through an inspection as quickly and painlessly as possible. ITI’s self-paced lessons:
- Average 30 minutes each
- Can be completed anywhere there’s internet on a phone, tablet or laptop
- Are updated whenever there is a new regulation or requirement
- Require drivers to prove they understand the material by successfully passing quizzes throughout each lesson
